Summary

The legacy of the Great War through the eyes of the bards who were writing in the years after the conflict. It was thought it would be `the war to end all wars', but it wasn't and that realisation led many poets such as Murdo MacFarlane to question the effectiveness of war in general. However, at the same time it was realised that the sacrifice of those who went into battle should never be forgotten. Featuring specially recorded performances by Gaelic singers Art Cormack, Linda MacLeod, Murdo MacDonald and Robert Robertson.
